Mousewheel/swipe only zooms in and out.

Postby dbqjoe » Mon Mar 13, 2017 3:37 am

Just bought a MacBook Pro 15. I've been using ACDSee on Windows for 10+ years now and its the best image viewer I've ever used. Sadly there doesn't seem to be a Mac version (Ive tried the Pro 3 version or whatever it was called ages ago and it was terrible).

I've got XNViewMP 0.84 setup to look and operate almost as identical to what ACDSee is under Windows. However Im running into a total deal breaker with the scroll wheel/touchpad swipe. No matter what setting I use in preferences, the images will zoom in or out instead of advancing back or forward like I need it to be in fullscreen mode. Same goes for swiping left or right using the touchpad.

Not sure if Im just not configuring something correctly or if this is a bug. I have it set so XNview starts in browser mode and double clicking an image enters fullscreen, double clicking again exits back to Browser mode. Also zoom mode is set to fit width or height of image.

Now its scrolling up or down on the image. Clearly a bug at this point.

The mouse behavior is controlled in Tools | Settings | Interface | Mouse.

Take care which actions are you setting there and with what effect. Perhaps the program needs restarting in order to have the new gestures activated.

Yes I know (actually on MacOS is XNViewMP>Preferences>Interface>mouse) but no matter what I change it insists on zooming. I always using +- on my keyboard when zooming in ACDSee so I wish I could just disable zooming all together.

Heres a shot of what it looks like: http://imgur.com/7IGJNJt

Again both mouse wheel and two finger swipe left or right will zoom the image, or sometimes scroll up down.

Yes, unless theres another default way of scrolling using the touchpad on a MacBook. Either way no matter what setting is chosen it always zooms image either with mouse wheel or swipe.

Well it doesn't for me and as the picture clearly shows I have the option set for Previous/Next. I've uninstalled with App Cleaner and re-installed but still the same behavior. I've done all I can and will just not use XNView and move on to something else.

Hello:
Can you try disable left click as selection, restart, then see what happens. Then try setting it back on
Is their anyway select is trying to work first.

Maybe even rename your .ini file so xnview makes a new file with defaults. Try to set only next/prev first, then set the rest after you verify it working.
I've seen weird things happen here also, a time or two on windows, but a new settings file or restart has fixed it for me.

Thanks

Check the system preferences for your touchpad and see if zoom/swipe options are disabled/enabled properly for what you want. Could be a simple fix, just a shot at helping.
